Gota To Lead UPFA Snubs Alliance

Former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa, despite initially stating he has no intention of entering politics is now saying he will in fact enter politics and Colombo Telegraph reliably learns he will be leading the UPFA snubs.

In an interview with Sri Lanka Mirror this week, the Rajapaksa sibling said although he initially did not have any intention of entering politics, he feels as if various reasons have pushed him into deciding otherwise.

“So if I get a chance to contest, I will,” he said while adding that he has not chosen a political party to contest yet. However, Colombo Telegraph reliably learns that it is he and not Mahinda Rajapaksa who will be leading the UPFA snubs at the upcoming general election. It has also been revealed that the extremist group Bodu Bala Sena which grew powerful during the Rajapaksa regime under the patronage of Gotabhaya has requested to join the alliance that would be formed by the UPFA snubs and officially pledge their support to Gotabhaya at the upcoming election campaigning period.

He says he was genuine in his intention to do some service to the country and its people and that he feels this goal was achieved during his tenures as the Defence Secretary and later Secretary to the Ministry of Defence and Urban planning.
“I was able to, not simply end the devastation caused by terrorism but also afterwards, improve the defense situation and thereafter, transform Colombo into a beautified, well-planned city,” he said.

Speaking further Gotabaya says he never took into account, personal benefits or advantages when serving the masses and added that he feels he will be able to continue delivering tangible results with concern to the development of the country by entering the political arena of Sri Lanka.

Despite expressing his dedication to be a genuine public servant, it was revealed that Gotabaya and his brother were leading lavish lifestyles at the expense of public finances. Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa had been keeping some 43 imported dogs from various foreign countries and some 23 varieties of exotic birds at the Temple Trees. Meanwhile, it was reported that Gotabaya had been keeping a shark at his residence, which had been taken care of by a Navy official along with two baby elephants, that he handed over to the Wildlife department in January following MR’s defeat. The shark was gifted to a businessman in Mount Lavinia according to Sri Lanka Mirror

Despite his repeated rejection of the reports rearing a shark in his house, his weakness for elephants and sharks is evident from the wooden, ornamental shark and elephant ornaments that are placed in a glass cabinet at his house, which can be seen in the backdrop.

      “So the people of so called good governance should be ready to pay the price of their softcorner over rajapassa junta and their lethargy to take actions against those who plundered”

      So, what about the Coup and All the Corruption.

      So, Election Manifesto is White Van and BBS Rack in the streets and have Bad and racist governance? Looks like that.

      The Average IQ of the Modayas, Mootals and Fools who voted for mahinda Rajapaksa was 65. There were 5.8 Million of them.,

      Some. surely will vote for Gota.

          It is [Edited out] talk of this nature that is destroying efforts of reconciliation in this country.

          This type of aggressive, Islamic rhetoric needs to be condemned without fear of being branded as ‘not nice’.

          The biggest threat to Sri Lanka at present does not come from the LTTE or the Tamil diaspora, but from the Islamists Wahabis.

            You are dead right.

            This man fallen from the sky all of sudden but seems to have not the least knowledge of the torments that people of this country went through until the 9th of January. All those add their thoughts today as if finally enjoying the pressfreedom are named after NGO or CIA supporters by him. I really dont know what goes through the mind sets of these buggers though seem to have learnt degrees.

            From what I got to see while short stays in the country not just immediately before the MR ‘s defeat all the recent years from descending now to 2005 – the political climate dawned by Rajapakshes were not at all the style of what people used to before 2005.

            The kind of Giguruwa or Makuluwa would not succeed if his agendas are to manipulate the masses supporting most abusive MR and his politics.
            My wish is to put that STREET MAN wIMAL Buruwanse and Gommanpilla – political teenager long term jails learning them a lession for the rest of life. Wimal buruwanse animated the masses abusing the poor people’s gullibility and vulnarability.

      Indeed. Spineless, corrupt UNP & Co is about to get its’ behind whipped. For the 29th time.

      That will pave the way for “Maria Kade” politics of Sajith. Another calculating, driven, backroom, shady deal-maker. Who is convinced, he has inherited top office in SL as well.

      Make no mistake fascist Gota & Co will galvanize the vicious, ethno-religious base in this country. That will effectively cover up their crimes as political vendettas.

      We are about to see consequences of half-hearted, lethargic way RW & Co went about in punishing the criminal Rajapassa family. For reasons only known to RW & and his closed group of backroom deal-makers.

      Sri Lanka may have missed the bus already for good. Once again.

        Ben,

        Please do not get excited. By the time the Parliament is dissolved and General Elections are held, our friend will be facing a list of charges from Lasantha Wickrematunge’s murder to the MIG deal. You think RW is a fool? See how he has maneuvered so far conducting business as the PM not having the majority in the Parliament? RW is a Master strategist to have ousted MR without shedding blood or lives of innocent people. However the pluses of RW will never be seen positively by the anti-Ranil. Wait till the next General Election to see what RW is capable of. From the day of dissolving the Parliament, the drama that will unfold will give you an indication.

            Hey Randy,

            You are permanently excited, aren’t you?

            UNP is trying to split the SLFP by covertly backing corrupt MR & Co. Explains the go slow approach to criminal investigations of Rajapassa & Co.

            People of this country delivered. They kicked Rajapassa out. Now they are being bamboozled. As always. With investigative commissions & teeth less media statements. About impending punishments. What an eyewash!

            Meanwhile Wele Suda leaks have gone silent. Duminda Silva is roaming free. His brother Rayon Silva’s Hiru media is blossoming like never before. That’s just the tip of the iceberg.

            BTW, where is Hirunika?

            Corrupt politicians now hold portfolios in an ever expanding Cabinet. In direct violation of a clear promise given to 20 million people.

            John Amaratunga running utterly corrupt & brutal Sri Lanka Police. Joke!

            Cronies, rather than qualified professionals selected after due process, are being appointed to GOSL owned institutions. Such as Lake house and Srilankan Airlines. Again, just the tip of the iceberg.

            Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Mother Sri Lanka.

          Yes Gamini, we experienced “master strategies” of RW with the case of Central Bank, baton charging uni students, making Upul Jayasuriya as the BOC chairman in the last couple of weeks. And much before that, when he signed so called “peace accord” and introducing the white paper to the national education in 70′ we saw RW’s capabilities. In fact Gota should come to politics because of stupid one-sided people like you Gamini. Do not you know that MIG deal case against him has thrown away by the Mt. Lavinia courts recently. And Lasantha’s case, do not you aware or heard at least in your dreams that your Field Marshel’s name is involved? All your stupid dreams will be shattered when Gota comes to the political arena. Im someone who voted for my3 at the last election but I take no time to praise Gota for what he has done during the war and the beautification of towns.

        The all-time loser Ranil is going to lose again. If this government had made Sarath Fonseka the defence secretary, all these thieves and murderers would have been in jail by now. The civic rights of the Rajapakshes should be removed for all the political crimes they committed during the last 10 years. Gota was a killing machine. He created the white vans, grease devils, BBS, and also many other crimes.

        Unfortunately, there are enough fools in Sri Lanka who will still vote for the Rajapakshes, RW and MY3 are great fools, they will never learn lessons. Even God cannot save this 100 day government, very soon it will come to an end.

      sadly true.. How on earth this idiot and megalomaniac is still freely roaming? he is a venomous double headed serpent, when let loose, is a hindrance to society. RW still does not know the ” sting” of this idiot.

      IF he is allowed to roam free and not locked up for good, he along with the BBS will go bersek setting SL on fire like how Hanuman’s tail was set on fire…

      I say nip it in the bud and do NOT let him rise up once again and make a mockery of the 6.2 mil who voted out MR…

      Whatever happened to the questioning by the CID at HIS house at a convenient time for him even after he is just an ordinary citizen…and he had the audacity to say that he will respond back at a time convenient to him…

      WHY did the CID go to his house to get his statement is beyond reasonable thinking… who was instrumental in sending the CID to his house and to not make him come to the CID HQ is a question worth pondering?

    Imagine the nexus of Gota, Wimale, Dinesh, GonManPila and guys like BBS forms a junta and the plight of the country and the minirities.

    The good thing is this will break the SLFP like 80% goes to My3/Nimal and 20% goes to Mara/BaRa group and UNP will be the ultimate winner.

    There is no chnace for this alliance as within 2-3 years, will endup like the DUNF of Lalith/Gamini in early 90’s.

    The good think is except for China, the whole international community including India is against with Rajapaksas and they wont have any backing of whatsoever.

Our post 1956 history proves Sri Lankans, for the most part, are poor in discipline and generally crooked in nature. If he makes it to positions of power again the Sinhala electorate can expect a far shriller taste of 1971 and 1988-89. Sri Lanka can become another Afghanistan.

          My friend Gamaya Yapalanam

          LTTE and VP were by-products of Sinhala chauvinism and the Sinhala Buddhist Only mentality that progressively destroyed this country from 1956. Tamil youth could not take it anymore
          after 2 decades of intolerance and indifference. A few of them
          took to arms but the entire Tamil Nation was to suffer for 30 years. The War was ended by the international community. Fonseka and the Rajapakses paid minor roles. It was a war where
          nearly 350,000 fully armed men with the latest equipment from air, land and sea could not overcome a brigand of about 12,000 shoe-less rag tag army (Govt. estimates)for 30 years. Why this long time is something you should know by the crop of millionaires within the tri-forces the War produced. Just one of them – a top VVIP – was caught with several millions in several bank vaults. But the system in the country is so sick, he went scot free and died a free man.

          Today, Sri Lanka remains a near bankrupt country. They are going around to find Rs.400 million just to pay salaries. The political system is about to collapse. The Tamil Nation, treated as a subject and occupied nation for 3 decades, is trying to save itself and wriggle out of this mess.

          You ask me if there was discipline under the LTTE for the Tamils.
          You must be one more Chimpanzee who did not know what went behind the Cadjan Curtain and if you do not know the answer.
          Why were the Rajapakses afraid to allow Justice Wigneswaren’s NPC to function effectively for over 2 years? Why was the democratic vote of the Jaffna people silenced by the Rajapakses? They were afraid if Tamils are allowed to run their affairs – even within an undivided country, they will bring in a well run, corruption-free Jaffna that will shame the Sinhala South.

      Non PhD,

      Foreign citizens have no political rights in SL and even don’t have some of the fundamental rights that we citizens have.

      A dual citizen is a citizen of SL and can become a politician and everything else.

      My question is: is Gota really legally a dual citizen or not?

      There are many who have obtained foreign citizenship and illegally continue being SL citizens because they never told the truth or might even not know the law.

        actually not, because of conflict of interessets and divided loyality. All these time under where all the foreigners and dual citizens were having high sensitive offices like DS, minister of Economics etc,. it was questionable to which country they were loyal. The case of Basil was a perfect example, as ke knew he would be arrested or charged for corruption he pulled out his US permenant residency card. So it should be legally forbidden. Moreover all these morons were banging on the patriotic and nationalistic drum for the gama modayas, at least they should have given upthe other citizenship befor they did this show. The Nationalists were shouting Navi Pillai could not be neutral because she is an ethnic Tamil How could Gota be loyal if he still clamp to his US green card?

One of this family theives very urgently need power to escape from all accusations. Maithree should not allow any of them to enter into politics.

    I am confused with a consistent statement Rajapaksas make. They say they ended terrorism on one instance and say terrorism is coming back in another. The best we know is the top agents like karuna, K.P and many others are on their side and used to stir up the pot from time to time. I am sure they will try to prove to masses that terrorism is still alive by clandestinely setting up a bomb using Karuna’s agents and use as a launching pad for them to come to power. The yahapalanaya should use the intelligence to keep an eye on these crooks.

    I also believe they should be allowed to freely contest the election and that would be the end of their big talk. I have no doubt that Srilankans will reject them. There is no reason to fear them. It is the few who have lost the remnants and pieces of the illegal money and comfort, who are making a big noise of a come back. Once this happen ALL PAKSAS WITH THE HOOLIGANS STILL WITH THEM SHOULD BE THROWN IN JAIL for ice for all the crimes with both hard core and circumstantial evidence.

      “I am confused with a consistent statement Rajapaksas make. They say they ended terrorism on one instance and say terrorism is coming back in another (sic)” If I understood you correctly, you make reference to the notorious double-speak of the Rajapakses. But, Sensible Citizen, that lying is second nature to the Rajapakses is widely known nationally. But what shames all of us as Lankans is that Rajapakse is known as a congenital liar by the world itself – India, the UN and many other international players. He has the ugly reputation of going back on the written word as well.

      And to know there are still some ready to bring the man back to power????

    One cannot imagine G O T A getting into politics with so many charges against him
    outstanding – all of which can be best proved with time, to stand up to legal standards.
    This takes time but Justice will prevail. His statements are merely to cover up his
    lost status in the local Media. The support of the BBS which MR cried recently as a
    cause of his loss will apply to any Gotoa-led Group too. With the mounting accusations
    against the Rajapakses, they have no chance for ever. [Edited out]

      I cannot imagine how Ravi was given the Ministry of Finance when he has a pending court case for the violation of Foreign exchange regulation

      I cannot imagine how Ranil can try to be the Executive Prime minister of this country through his subtle manipulation of 19th amendment – when he is not the elected Prime Minister of the Parliament but the selected PM

      I cannot imagine how can Ranil stay in power when the scandal of Central Bank bond issue is clearly a day light robbing of the national wealth

      I really cannot imagine how these guys can run this country better than Rajapaksas

      Gotabaya is no doubt a better leader – provided if he drops all the bastards under previous regime – like BBS , Sihala Ravaya , Sajin Vass , Anura P Yapa , Nimal Siripala , Weerawansa , Mahindananda , Rohitha (Ratharan),SB, Pavithra, etc etc. and select best brains to run this country

      We need a Leader with a vision and a backbone who can get things done by hook or crook without listening to all sundries

        True but all are Alice’s in Wonderland or Rip Van Winkle-

        Lanka is under all american cards and cannot do Orthodox byzantine style- It is there to nudge India for US sake- so the continuous training of forces by US.
        But today India is Israel and Russia together – It has pegged Lanka down- stay in your brood.

          China needs Russian technology and is very hungry.
          Russia has satisfied that hunger in real terms with a 30 year $1 trillion Gas & Oil line direct from Siberia to China- china has less sea travel in the pacific to soften South China Sea as Russia does not need an American nuke in the Sea next to it. Same scenario as with Egypt UN Resolution 242- Russia does not want war with US for other sake and China too- that is big power.

    I hope so . I also hope the Sri Lankans have the capacity to understand a man who actually does something rather than talks politics . but this second hope is a hope in vain I think . our people will rather go hungry then talk politics .

      Abhaya ,

      This is what you had written as a response to my comment in an earlier occasion ,for your convenience, here i reproduced your comment as well as mine , respond if you can at least this time .

      “Jackass Nalin de silva is genius . and I know him and his family well . and no it is not possible to complete a Phd in 18 months . ”

      based on your limited knowledge about the subject , you jumped the gun and called me a jackass , read the following paragraph and then pick up the phone to verify the facts from Nalin Desilva himself , then you decide who the jackass is !

      “Prof. Nalin de Silva was born on 20 October 1944 in Kovilagodella, Panadura, Sri Lanka. He had his secondary education at Royal College Colombo.[9] He entered the University of Ceylon in 1963 and graduated in Mathematics in 1967. De Silva entered University of Sussex in January 1969 and obtained his Doctorate in Theoretical Cosmology in 1970. He is married and has two sons and one daughter.”

          Abhaya ,

          Will you admit now that you didn’t know much about the P.hD and its related work ? you thought all the P.hD s would take 3 to 5 years ( for both research and writing the thesis ) , see how ignorant one can be , don’t you think one should know what he/she is talking about before commenting on public forums ? by the way i just happened to respond to this particular comment of yours out of 100 s , regret to tell you, almost all your comments fall under the above category.

          Cheers

            He graduated in 1967 . got his phd in 1970 . that is 3 years , in the UK you can get a phd in 3 years as they bypass the masters but will be nearly impossible in the US or any other country unless the work had already been done .

            How long did it take to get your PHD in google ? 10 years

              Abhaya ,

              “He graduated in 1967 . got his phd in 1970 . that is 3 years “

              Either you are extremely dumb or unsuccessfully trying to cover up your stupidity , which one is it ?

              Prof. Nalin finished his bachelors Degree in 1967 then he had started his P.hD in 1969 and completed in 1970 , even a grade grade two student wouldn’t say that is equivalent to three years but you , wonder why ? now don’t try to drag this in to my P.hD or other irrelevant topics , try to stick to the point , didn’t you say “it is not possible to complete a Phd in 18 months .” haven’t i proved your dumb argument is dead wrong with a matching story ? can you substantiate your silly argument with facts and figures than resorting to use filth or deviating from the main topic , that is a challenge , take it if you have balls !

              PS:according to your silly argument , if one finishes his/her first degree in 1985 and worked for 15 years then decided to start doing P.hD year 2000 and then competes in 2003 , he has taken 18 years to complete his P.hD , not a bad argument for a hot shot like you Abaya !

              May I ask you this – what any other country you re refering to here ?

              I myself know a number of candidates that have completed their doctorates within 12-18months in Germany and France. Many of them are from arts faculties. One senior colleague of mine has completed his PhD within 18 months – he is a chemist. So depending on your experiments and the results obtained – supervisors can shorten the preiod of the period of thesis work. These are realities in Germany, Switzerland, France and several other countries in Europe. So, Abhaya or anyone to see it in that way is not right.

    Don’t blame the man! Blame the idiots who make him feel wanted. He is a product of the system we have created by neglecting OUR responsibilities. If we had all voted and participated in the political process as we did this January, there would not have been the corruption and criminality of the last 9 years.

    We are not going to get rid of bribery, corruption and criminality in Sri Lankan politics because we the people are on the other side of all these activities.

    As per this article….

    Former President Mahinda Rajapakse has been keeping some 43 imported dogs from various foreign countries….

    All these dogs, most probably,have a pedigree with an authentic pedigree chart,which Mahinda Rajapaksa does not have.

    As per this article….

    Meanwhile,it was reported that Gotabaya had been keeping a Shark at his residence…..

    I am sure Gota is a bigger SHARK THAN THE ONE HE IS KEEPING.

    LOL at this news item scaring all the racist Tamils hoping to dominate the Sinhalese through their puppets Ranil/My3/CBK.

    Seems this news (true or not) has shaken to the core the racist Tamil people and the Colombo UNP Christians as evident by their hate filled comments (reflecting their fears).

    Its understandable they hate GR in particular, and the Rs in general, after all they destroyed the Tamils killing machine and symbol of power (the LTTE) that was used to intimidate Sinhalese along with robing the Colombo UNP Christians of a election platform (“how we’ll deal with the LTTE”) to con the people with.

    Seeing these people get all riled up and SCARED over this news item (true or not) is just wonderful.

    Old King never allowed to market the Brother Prince. He did not even the Mahavamsa Modayas will know this barbaric monster. If this barbaric monster leas breakaway faction, that is the end of Old King’s coming back. South will not budge this wild lion’s “white van” intimidations.

    But the coming back of Old King is left over by the technique he used over Ranil Mahata. He called Ranil on the 8th January to negotiate his safety. Then to prevent the negotiation back fire on him, he spread a lie as there was coup at the Temple Tree in that morning. The frenzy media spread this wild story. It had worked on his side. The average Southern Sinhala man is longing if that coup had victory. They like to see their rebellious leader. That is how the Sinhala man sees him. This how he portray him to Sinhala man. One can see this from his recent explanation why the Tamils did not vote for him. He said when Tamil were looking at Thalavar Pirapaharan as he one going to bring them freedom and he destroyed that leader and after that how can he could expect vots from Tamils. Then he said he did not expect Tamils to vote for him.

    The way he visioned Thalaivar Piraphakaran’s status with in the Tamil population, and his action against Tamils’ wish , he want to show to the people as his visionary behavior. He wanted to position himself with in Sinhala peoples’ the way Pirapakaran had positioned himself. That is destroying Tamils dream will only lift him to the position Thalaivar had with in Tamils. So he traded the Tamils acceptance to the Sinahala acceptance. He is not the one care about the national acceptance. This was followed by creating BBS to trade Muslims’ acceptance to Sinhala extremists’ too.

    In contrast to these techniques, harassing Muslim, Tamils women with army monsters with the “grease monster” or white van thugs never boosted the Mahawamsa Modayas’ vote bank on the cost of minority votes. But, on the opposite of that, it eroded at some level of Sinhala votes, with Tamils and Muslims votes.

    Tamils never voted to Old King. If he tries to explain why in this election Tamils not voted, it may sound like a comedy. But he did not just baffle, he is offering these as a bundled deal with the other stories he spread as Temple Tree coup and other techniques. It will work as long as Ranil Mahata is tied in with the promise, which was obtained by the Old King from Ranil on the 8th morning, which was, Old King wanted to be hidden with the coup story. Releasing those secret will backfire on his image of Masculine Hero. The one who won the tiger, Thalaivar Pirapakaran cannot be seen as have surrendered to a tail-ess fox, Ranil Mahata.

    This lock is keeping Ranil Mahata not to release, not just the war crime, even corruptions brought out. The problems are even if Ranil Mahata is ready to investigate corruptions he cannot, as the interconnected war crime will come out of that. So the Old King will remain un-destroyed by Ranil Mahata until he figured out a way to come back. But it is not through barbaric Brother Prince.

          Rabok,
          Yes they have all forgotten how some of the bread winners in families were butchered for defying chit curfew and reporting to work and their corpses were not allowed to be carried at shoulder level but at knee level. They also massacred innocents as Prof. Stanley Wijesundara, Premakeerthi De Alwis, Sumana Gomez and a whole heap of non politicians. Some of the heads were severed from the body and spiked on the fence posts in front of their houses. Strange how some conveniently forget them. Must be suffering from selective amnesia. These gruesome murders were committed by very innocent children who still had the scent of their mother’s milk in their breath. What is seen as wrong, was them being butchered by the govt in retaliation to arrest the crime wave that prevailed. Did it not stop with the butchering of the innocents you claim?

    This is the best news that has come out since January 8th! Win or Loose its going to dived not only the “SLFP” but for certain the voter base of the “UNP”. All Sri Lankans know that Gotabaya Rajapakse is a man with a vision on a mission and he will get the job done. Great news…Love it!

    Here are the words of wisdom given by Ben Hurling above

    “Make no mistake fascist Gota & Co will galvanize the vicious, ethno-religious base in this country. That will effectively cover up their crimes as political vendettas”

    The UNP and all right thinking men must take the threat seriously. Is it the end of the road for this lovely country and particularly for the Sinhala Buddhists

    Gotabaya has clear his name before contest any election. Many people and international community accuse him for crimes against humanity. I am not saying he is responsible or not. But he is not eligible for public position at any cost. The party which accomadate his candidacy is also become criminally responsible for it and it is Nazist approach.

    Will he be a national list parliamentarian or contested? How he will campaign? Will he be a VIP and provided with security from special commandoes? Multiparty democracy proliferates parties divide votes to cause confusion. The Crown in EU countries watchdogs in times of crises and in some nations revolutionary councils veto candidates with security risk being contested. The impeachment process found to be tedious complex hence discouraging. What is the alternative than inclusive non-partisan governance? (Can anyone enlighten me emergency care taker govt. supreme authority etc?)
